The wealthiest 1 percent of the world's population now owns more than half of the world's wealth, according to a new report. The total wealth in the world grew by 6 percent over the past 12 months to $280 trillion, marking the fastest wealth creation since 2012, according to the Credit Suisse report.

Check out this link form the UL Guardian as it relates to the mess in the UK over Brexit..

How much wealth does the top 10% of the world's population control?

The top 10% of families -- those who had at least $942,000 -- held 76% of total wealth. The average amount of wealth in this group was $4 million. Everyone else in the top 50% of the country accounted for 23% of total wealth, with an average of $316,000 per family.Aug 18, 2016

Imagine. Out of 7 billion people living on this planet, 700 million control  three quarters of the world's wealth. How disgusting is that? Why does i person need a billion dollars? Why does a family need 100 billion dollars?

None of us can take our possessions with us when we go and as sure as taxes, we are all going to go at some point. 

Maybe it's time for another revolution. Time for 700 million human beings to realize that they were not given two hands to grab as much as they can for themselves. 

Then there is the insane amount of money spent annually on weapons. Do you really want to know how much?  Global military spending rose to $1.7 trillion last year, an increase of 1.1 per cent on 2016, according to an arms watchdog. The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) said Wednesday that China increased its military spending in an upward trend that has continued for over two decades.May 2, 2018. That is $285 dollars for every man woman and child on the planet. 

How much does it cost to feed a child in sub Sahara Africa?  For the sake of precision: due to the recent fuel and food price increase, the cost to feed a child per day is now 25 cents.

Imagine?  This is PER DAY! Not per meal. Do the numbers if you dare and while you are about it, read the following link.

What on this planet is more important than children?

One hundred years from now,
It will not matter,
What kind of car I drove,

What kind of house I lived in,
How much I had in my bank,
Nor what my clothes looked like.
One hundred years from now,
It will not matter,
What kind of school I attended,
What kind of typewriter I used,
How large or small my church.
But the world may be. . .
A little better because. . .
I was important in the life of a child.

Children are the ones who are very vital for deciding how the world is gonna be after some years. So if one can do some good in the life of a child then there can be change, at least a slightest change, in the world to come. And if most of them think on same lines then we can hope of a better future ahead. The main component which decides how the person is going to be in the future or the present is the amount of education he/she has within them. 
Education has to be aimed at the overall development of child. Rural areas have been major victim of lack of educational facilities, thats where most of the children are deprived of even the basic education. And coming to the urban life its totally insane. Children are a means of cheap labor who rarely speak against their masters. There were many drives which were aimed at preventing Child Labor, but if the child itself is willing to work or the parents are not ready to take their child back, then nothing can be effective or nothing will work. 
The only way to do it is to  change the education system for such children. Let them have a separate educational system where they are given Vocational Training in parallel with the Basic Education. The training will help them earn their livelihood in the future and also education. And there must be a certain age limit after which the person/Child will be allowed to carry on his/her independent work in the area in which he/she has been trained, until then he/she will have to be under the scrutiny of the Institute providing training.

Education is the missing link everywhere. Lack of basic education has been an hindrance to many and at most occasions uneducated people get cheated easily. There should be some cash based incentive for the children education. So planning of buying car even though already have one, of having number of houses- one in each area or of buying thing which you already have/are not in need of? Then do think before doing it. Read the lines above- It might have an impact.

The science of vaccinations has been proven. Vaccinating saves lives. Full stop! Countries around the world where vaccinating children has slowed down or in some places, stopped are now experiencing the resurgence of diseases that were once considered eliminated.

There are hundreds of website providing misinformation on vaccinating children, 100% of them written by ignorant, superstitious and / or quacky religious nuts who see the hand of the devil in anything that is not written and supported  by whatever holy book they are choosing to follow. They are doing everything they can to get their misinformation and propaganda out so that you don't vaccinate and protect your kids.

The following is a link to a very educational website for parents who care about their children and the community at large. The article is "50 Anti-Vaccine Myths and Misinformation".
